Football may be on most minds during November, but we didn't forget about the NBA. We're here to recap what happened yesterday and preview tonight's action. Without further ado, let's dive into yesterday's action.
Indiana Pacers 123, Milwaukee Bucks 86
The Pacers crushed the Bucks, behind 20-point games from three different players. Paul George dropped 20, C.J. Miles put up 21 and Jordan Hill scored 20. The Pacers win is even more impressive considering they were without George Hill and Myles Turner.
Only three Bucks reached double figures. Greg Monroe led the way with 11 (and 14 board), Jabari Parker scored 10 and O.J. Mayo came off the bench to add 10. Overall, it wasn't a good night for the Bucks.
Sacramento Kings 97, Orlando Magic 91
DeMarcus Cousins carried the Kings to a win. He put up 29 points, 12 rebounds, six assists, three steals and three blocks. The Kings only used eight players in the win.
Tobias Harris led the way for Orlando, but his 24 points weren't enough. Guards Victor Oladipo and Elfrid Payton struggled, going a combined 7 of 23 from the field.
Cleveland Cavaliers 109, Atlanta Hawks 97
Kevin Love led the way for the Cavs, putting up 25 points and 11 rebounds. LeBron James nearly had a triple double, racking up 19 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists.
Two Hawks put up double doubles, but it still wasn't enough to win. Paul Milsap put up 14 points and 11 boards, while Al Horford had 10 points and 11 boards.
Washington Wizards 97, Detroit Pistons 95
The bench was responsible for the Wizards win. Nene scored 18 and Ramon Sessions added 14. Those two had a combined +46 plus/minus. The starters struggled, especially John Wall. He had seven assists, but was just 4 of 11 from the field.
The Pistons got nothing from their bench. The starters all played at least 32 minutes and the bench combined for just 15 points. Reggie Jackson led the way with a game-high 20 points.
Miami Heat 96, Philadelphia 76ers 91
Dwayne Wade put the Heat on his back against the 76ers. He scored more points than any two of his teammates combined, racking up 27. He added seven rebounds, four assists and three steals. Chris Bosh posted a double double.
The 76ers are still searching for their first win of the season. Isaiah Canaan and Robert Covington played well off the bench, scoring 22 and 21, respectively.
New York Knicks 107, Houston Rockets 102
Kristaps Porzingis had another strong game, posting 24 points and 14 board. He also added seven blocks as he continued his great rookie season.
The Rockets' struggle this year continues. James Harden had 24, but was just 8 of 20 from the field. Dwight Howard didn't play, because he needed "rest."
San Antonio Spurs 92, Memphis Grizzlies 82
A classic Spurs win, as four players had at least 10 points. Kawhi Leonard dropped 19, adding seven rebounds and three assists. Tim Duncan had a double double, with 10 points and 10 boards.
The Grizzlies struggled from beyond the arc, going just 1 for 9. Mike Conley led the way with 16 points, while Courtney Lee added 15 off the bench.
Toronto Raptors @ Los Angeles Clippers
The Raptors have the better record, but the Clippers are favored by 6.5. The Clippers have had issues finishing games this season, but they can change that against the Raptors.
Boston Celtics @ Brooklyn Nets
The Celtics are 7-5 and should add another win against a 2-11 Nets team.
Phoenix Suns @ New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans have not lived up to expectations so far, in large part because of injuries. Anthony Davis can only do so much. However, they are slight favorites against the Suns.
Dallas Mavericks @ Oklahoma City Thunder
The Mavs have a better record, but you'd be hard pressed to find a non-Mavs fan who thinks they are the better team. Russell Westbrook should deliver another win.
Golden State Warriors @ Denver Nuggets
The Warriors are 14-0 and have a chance to match the NBA record for best start to a season against the Nuggets. The Warriors should win this one.
Portland Trail Blazers @ Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers have struggled all season and that could continue against a Portland team that still misses LaMarcus Aldridge.Back to the NBA Newsfeed
